According to the August 7, 1917 minutes of the Bartow County Board of Eduction, “the Superintendent of Schools was instructed to open the Conesene Colored School for such time and upon conditions to be named by him and he has agreed to continue the school for one month ending Sept 7th at a salary of $15 per month”.  This African American school was not listed in the Board’s 1926 teacher salary report.
